Third DUI, Deputy Killed, Gets North Texas Man 99 Years with 42 Years Extra

A north Texas man with two previous DWI convictions has been sentenced to 99 years in prison for the death of a deputy who was hit while directing traffic. Grayson County district attorney, Joe Brown, said that jurors in Sherman, TX convicted Ricky Trent Stanley of murder and aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury to a public servant. Investigators say the Whitesboro, TX man's blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit during the April 2013 wreck that killed deputy Chad Key. Key was struck while directing traffic near Sherman, TX, about 60 miles north of Dallas, TX.
